IPA Seniors Create “Quarantine Art Club – Color with Teens in Quarantine”

Three ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY seniors saw a need in the community and rose to the challenge in a creative and meaningful way. With the entire state of Hawai’i staying at home in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, they were inspired to help others spend their time creatively, so they created the Quarantine Art Club – a website with free, original coloring pages they create for anyone to download and enjoy.

Lā Hoʻonui ʻIke and Hands-On Learning for Grade 4 Students

Grade 4 students had a day of enhancing knowledge, lā hoʻonui ʻike, as part of their unit of inquiry on Hawaiian history and culture. The special event was an opportunity for students to connect theory to practice, and also provided the opportunity for Grade 4 families to join in the learning experience with their children. The result was a wonderful family evening of sharing, learning, community, and connection.
